    Default 'exec' creates popup windows I don't want to see

    Wise ones,

    I'm running php under apache (I'm using the uniserv distribution) on
    Windows XP. Every time I execute an external command using backticks
    or exec or system, I get a cmd windows that pops up for the 1/4 second
    the command executes.

    This would all be fine, except that I'm deploying the server to run
    locally on the user's box, and needless to say, the popups are
    annoying. I've search everything I'm clever enough to understand and
    can't find a way to get the external commands to run in the
    'background'. All of the input and output of the commands have been
    redirected, any shell command causes this behavious, and in all other
    respects it all seems to work great.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you very very much for the time.

    system() works fine for me
